    I still wonder how much people would sing a different tune if the All-American class in '04 would have panned out a little better than it did.

    20 wins and out in the Sweet 16. You can have that all day. I will take the Final Four. You keep cheering for the Golden Gophers.

    It didn't, due to the fact Tubby was not a coach that could develop talent. He was handed a gift, that was the 1998 team. IMO if Cal would have had the 04 class they're in the Final Four easily.
